Pizza, Pizza, Pizza…and Halloween!
At our private Fried Pizza class last week, we came home with 6 balls of dough! I thought about freezing some, but it isn’t quite as good. And my large freezer is pretty full right now.
So, what to do with all that dough??
Monday: I had some eggs to use up so of course I made a sheet pan Breakfast Pizza…sausage gravy, cheddar cheese, Parmesan, shredded potatoes, another layer of mozzarella & cheddar and bacon.
Tuesday: Individual Air Fryer Pizzas…we each rolled our own dough to the size of the basket, added the toppings and then the cheese.
Friday (Fruit) Pieday: A fall fruit tops this week’s fruit pizza. Papaya Chicken Pizza…my pan crust topped with pineapple salsa, Brie, Parmesan, chicken, papaya and pineapple, green pepper & jalapeños from the garden, sweet onion, mozzarella and garnished with arugula dressed with olive oil, fresh ground pepper and a sprinkle of Sweet Maui Onion sea salt (bought on our trip to Hawaii a few years ago).
Saturday Lunch: To use up the last of the dough from Sunday’s class, Matthew invited his friend Adam over. They made Taco Calzones filled with taco sauce, taco meat, cheese and a variety of toppings.
Thursday (Saturday) Doughday: (Due to inclement weather Doughday was postponed to Saturday.) Harking back to their Boy Scout Days of year round monthly camping trips, Roy and Matthew took the cooking outside on this beautiful day. With a little inside prep, they made Dutch Oven Chili and Dutch Oven Blueberry Dump Cake.
Sunday’s Creation: To celebrate Halloween we have a Jack o’ lantern and candy! A Jack ‘o Lantern Pizza….my thin crust topped with red sauce, mozzarella, grated Parmesan, pepperoni, sharp cheddar and green pepper for the stem. And, Snickers ‘Salad’ Pizza (inspired by Christy Brown and a Midwest potluck favorite)…my thin graham cracker yeast crust topped with a cream cheese frosting, Granny Smith Apples, Snickers bars, pecans and a drizzle of sea salt caramel sauce.
For those of you not familiar with Snickers salad, it is a dessert salad made of Snickers bars, Granny Smith apples, pecans and whipped topping or pudding. It is a potluck and party staple in the Midwest.
I will leave you with some beautiful fall pics of our backyard…
Till next week…
